Trump Lawyers File Notice on Using Classified Documents in Trial – EVOL

No trial date has been set by Judge Cannon and she has yet to rule on motions to dismiss the case as well as a gag order request from Jack Smith.

Former President Donald Trump’s attorneys filed a notice confirming they will use classified materials as part of their defense strategy in his federal documents case.

A Monday filing from Trump attorneys Todd Blanche, Emil Bove, and Christopher Kise informed U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon and special counsel Jack Smith that they will submit a notice under the Classified Information Procedures Act (CIPA), which is a set of rules governing how to use classified records in cases.

Specifically, according to the notice, the former president’s attorneys made their first selection of the documents and told a “Classified Information Security Officer” in Fort Pierce, Florida, about their plans to use the classified materials. They did not reveal the nature of the documents they will use.

The filing suggests that the case appears to be progressing as the Trump attorneys had to meet a pre-trial deadline to inform the court of their decision. No trial date has been set in the case by Judge Cannon, and she has yet to rule on several motions
